Here are the lyrics to the song The Eagle Will Rise Again, which was written by Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons and published on the album Pyramid by the Alan Parsons Project. This song evokes strong emotions of hope and confidence, especially when listened to following the rather sad What goes up.

And I, could easily fall from grace
Then another would take my place
For the chance to behold your face
And the days, of my life are but grains of sand
As they fall from your open hand
At the call of the wind's command

Many words are spoken when there's nothing to say
They fall upon the ears of those who don't know the way
To read between the lines, that lead between the lines,
that lead me to you

All that I ask you
Is, show me how to follow you and I'll obey
Teach me how to reach you I can't find my own way
Let me see the light, let me be the light

As the sun turns slowly around the sky
Till the shadow of night is high
The eagle will learn to fly

And the days of his life are but grains of sand
As they fall from your open hand
And vanish upon the land

Many words are spoken when there's nothing to say
They fall upon the ears of those who don't know the way
To read between the lines, by following the signs that can lead to you
But show me how to follow you and I'll obey
Teach me how to reach you I can't find my own way

Let me see the light, let me be the light
And so, with no warning, no last goodbye
In the dawn of the morning sky
The eagle will rise again
